This is the main working restaurant in the Al Bandar hotel at the Al Jissah resort. We only ate breakfast here but the range of food and the excellent staff made it a lovely experience to start the day.
The freshly squeezed fruit juice and the range of fruit from around the world is exceptional, as is the freshly cooked omelettes.
Although we did not eat here in the evenings we spoke to people who had and the teemed buffets were described as very good especially for a reasonable fixed price.

Very good for a breakfast, brunch or dinner buffet but was disappointed with their menu selection and the taste of dishes. But unfortunately most 5* have similar problem.

Its amazing Buffet with a verity of food from sea food to beef and chicken,the place is very calm and quite nice for couples and even group .
The food is so tasty well done by the chiefs.
The only thing was missing is the desert which has less choices and not very tasty.

It is among the top choices for buffet lunch among star hotels in Oman. The main reason is their variety...huge spread!! Let's start with starters...best choice in both veg & non-veg. Choice for main course includes Omani, Indian, Mediterranean, Arabic & Continental. Dessert spread is great including stuffed dates & ice creams. Though not part of the buffet, one can order fresh fruit juices. It is a great experience to sit out in winter, overlooking the sea!! A walk to the beach close by will help appreciate the beauty of Al Bandar restaurant in Shangri-La's Bar Al Jissah Resorts, which is a scenic drive from Muscat city. Variety of food has not been repetitive, in spite of my frequent visits there.

This buffet had a good variety of seafood, middle eastern, Asian and western cuisines. The ambience was relaxed and pleasant, with a different theme each night.
